Our Story | Presto Drycleaners

Presto Drycleaners was established in 1992 in a small shop house located at Lake View, with a focus on dry cleaning services. In 2020, we took steps to develop our new look to tie in with our mission to provide personalised dry cleaning and laundry services. Like fashion, there is no “one style that fits all” solution, instead, fashion is about personal statement and confidence. 

Our founders started this company to solve an everyday problem – caring for items which can only be dry cleaned. Dry cleaning, at its heart is the caring of garments which are unable to be washed with water. Natural fibers like silk, wool can be easily damaged due to water cleaning.

Over the years, we explored multiple ways to remove stains, restore shrinkages and reverse colour bleeding. Our processes which we developed through countless trial & errors over the years, have given us the experience to provide the right care for your garment.  As we grew, we expanded our garment care services beyond dry cleaning to include laundry services, laundry pickup, carpet cleaning, curtain cleaning and alteration services to better serve the growing needs of our customers. 

Our brand started because of the missing piece in our laundry routine. Presto is built with the sweat and tears of our team, consisting of retail staff,  dry cleaners and ironers. It is through your support, feedback and belief that has made this brand what it is today. What we have learnt is that fashion goes round in a circle, what we wore in the past can be preserved and cared for, and to be worn again tomorrow. Join us on Instagram as we talk about what we do best and what we want to do in future.

We want to empower you to live like us, hire us for the things you hate. From our hearts to the rest of the world. 

Cleanliness is next to godliness, is next to timelessness.

– Mr. Chan

Responsible Cleaning

Our Process

Our Promise

With more than 25 years of dry cleaning experience, Presto Drycleaners has developed our signature 7 steps process when handling your garments. The 7 steps which we are proud of are: pre-sorting, garment inspection, sorting, cleaning, pressing, quality checks and packing. Every step of the process is performed by specialised members of our team. We work with different partners specialising in various cleaning agents to provide the level of quality which we take pride in.

We dry clean, launder and care for garments so that you can wear them again and again.

Did you know that by rewearing old garments 50 times and maintaining them for a year produces 400% less carbon emission per item compared to fast fashion garments which we wear less than 5 times? This is why high quality garment care is important to us. 

Every service we developed aims to enhance the convenience of cleaning your garments and to make your garments wearable every time you wash with us. When your clothes grow with you, they are like our second skin, every stain, every scratch and tiny hole represents a point of our lives which we lived and breathed. Our goal is to develop better dry cleaning and laundry techniques to improve the lifespan of your clothing.

We go through the fine print of recommended drycleaning and care so you don’t have to.
